would like to see take it. u.s. congressman edward markey is the most principled person i know in american politics. he's what spent his career standing up to the special interests, the polluters, the people who take advantage, the greedy. he has sat on legislative committees and seen the power of the special interests. and he, again and again as taken them on. markey is a committed believer in avoiding the dangers even of nuclear war. a believer of a safer, healthier environment. back in the 70s refused to buck toll the forces of selfishness and power. he is running for the seat once held by edward m. kennedy. what the kennedys have stood for in massachusetts. he supports women's rights to a t, and will make a great colleague to the courageous senator elizabeth warren. i'm tremendously proud to call him a free, i am thrilled that he now leads the democratic race for the senate nomination. i'm glad for the country that we have such fine americans ready to take up the task of leadership. markey's clean, he is strong, and he has the vision to make a powerful difference for the pr
state will have among the sharpest delegations in the entire u.s. senate. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. hillary clinton ends her run as secretary of state by nailing republicans for who they really are. i love it. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> i am very proud to have been secretary of state. >> hillary clinton gives her final farewell as secretary of state and doesn't mince parting words about the republicans refusing to face facts. karen finney and michael steele on clinton's right-wing call-out. >>> the stock market closes over 14,000. exxon has record profits, and income inequality has never been worse. senator bernie sanders on the fight ahead. >>> scott brown is out, and geraldo is in. >> this is a real-life horror story, and it will give small children bad dreams. >> we've got rivera's first senate campaign commercial ahead. >>> michelle goldberg, michael tamaski and gene robinson are here to talk about the lega
likely at the same time with the u.s. authorities here taking part. i'm looking back to see if there's any sign of anyone coming off yet. and we're still not seeing it. so that's still to come, ed. >> okay. i'm familiar with the faa but i'm not familiar with any international maritime regulations that might oversee operations of these big commercial ships that take passengers. i'd be interested to know exactly how all of that is going to unfold. i mean, who is the overriding authority on writing international regulations on what companies have to adhere to. because you've got a lot of things that will have to be after this one. mark potter stand by. we'll get back to you shortly. joining me is michael krye who has spent decades working on maritime safety issues. he was a spokesman for the cruise industry and is a former coast guard officer. mark, good to have you with us here on msnbc. thank you for your time. >> thank you. it's michael, by the way. >> i'm sorry. i didn't have that correctly. i apologize for that. michael, tell us who is the overriding authority on this on making reg
this total rumor and asking secretary clinton what she knew about it. >> my question is, is the u.s. involved with any procuring of weapons, transfer of weapons, buying, selling, anyhow transferring weapons to turkey out of libya? >> to turkey? >> and of course the trip wouldn't be complete if the story didn't wind back up on fox news that night. >> i don't have proof of this. no one has given me any information. i have no briefing to this. but there have been articles in the news print and in the press saying that there was some gun running going on. >> all of those crazy theories and rumors serve one purpose for the people who will not live in an evidence-based society, just like hillary clinton was talking about. they make people think that there is some larger conspiracy at play. and it goes all the way to the top, the white house. well, two can play this game. you see, you can connect the dots to make things appear any way you want. i think it's only fair to connect these dots to the republican party. they love to foster these conspiracies. they need to accept the consequences. republica
is another number. the u.s. economy will be hit with $85 billion in across-the-board cuts. how can americans not be thinking okay, what does this mean to me? the stakes are high. they're really high. president obama is going to focus on the economy in his state of the union address tomorrow night. he needs to. the fragile economic recovery pretty much hangs in the balance when you throw numbers like this around. congress imposed this budget sequester on the country, and now they have just been unable to deal with it. here is a taste of what will happen. here is where the conversation gets a little dicey. it means between 600,000 and maybe a little bit more than a million jobs could be lost, depending on how businesses react to this. we've had 35 months of private sector job growth. that's a good number, with no republican help. and i think that job growth is going to be in jeopardy, not to mention the impact these cuts are going to have on discretionary spending. sheer an example. here is a tornado ripping through mississippi this weekend. they might need some federal help. cuts to disaster
qaeda, whether they be a u.s. citizen or non-u.s. citizen, needs to know that they have the ability to surrender anytime, anywhere throughout the world. >> the controversy is not going away. the boundaries of transparency are still undefined. get your cell phones out. we want to know what you think tonight. tonight's question, do you agree with the policy of targeted killing of american citizens? text a for yes. text b for no. to our new number. our text number now is 67622. you can always go to our blog and leave a comment at ed.msnbc.com. we'll bring you the results later on in the program. tonight, i am joined by nbc news national investigative correspondent michael isakoff who broke the news of the memo earlier this week. good to have you with us. thank you. >> good to be with you, ed. >> did john brennan say anything today in your professional opinion to shed light on the targeted killing program? >> not much. in fact, in some respects he said less than he's said before. i listened closely through the entire hearing, and brennan never once used the word "drones." he talked abou
than the sequester. but don't put 50% of the cuts on the u.s. military. >> oh, by the way, the u.s. military is in virginia. i mean, this is a classic comment right there. you know, he wants all these spending cuts, but don't do it in my backyard. i mean, that's where they are. they're self-serving in many regards, and this is why the country can't stand government right now, can't stand the congress. >> well, look, it's total head-spinning, ed. here is the republican line. if you cut defense spending so you have fewer people building ships and things like that, that loses jobs. >> yeah. >> and frankly, it does. but if you cut transportation spending or you cut head start programs, somehow that doesn't hurt jobs. that somehow miraculously grows the economy. we know that's not the case. what republicans want to do here is what they tried in europe and failed. >> yeah. >> they tried this cut and grow. and what they got was cut and shrink. their economies are going down. they're in double-dip recessions. and that's the kind of medicine they want to prescribe here at home now. it won't
explained the impact of bringing cases to trial during the hearing. >> there are district attorneys and u.s. attorneys who are out there every day squeezing ordinary citizens on sometimes very thin grounds and taking them to trial in order to make an example, as they put it. >> martin, why is the government afraid of going to trial against the banks? she points out they're too big to go on trial. that's pretty much it, isn't it? >> that's absolutely what it seems to be. we asked. i asked lanny breuer, chief of the criminal division at the justice department about some comments he made about deferred prosecution agreements that he said that he had lost sleep at night, worried about the consequences, the collateral damage that would result from charging a bank with criminal fraud. so, you know, if there is -- if we need an admission that these banks are too big to fail and too big to jail, that was it. >> what impact in dollars could actual regulation have on the banks? i mean, they're going to make a profit. they have always made a profit. but this is the greedy fast lane. what impact could
in the u.s. military and if any are watching tonight, if i were you i'd say you deserve a vote. you know, he would be the first enlisted man ever to head the pentagon. i think enlisted personnel deserve some representation. and that the grunt's view at the pentagon is a real recommendation for chuck hagel. it would be interesting to start to hear from that community about how they feel about his being filibustered. >> michelle, your thoughts on this. i mean, isn't this harry reid's fault? harry had a chance to change the rules of the senate and he was too nice to mitch mcconnell and now look what we've got. there's probably more to come. your thoughts. >> i suppose so, though i remember not very long ago when we were all suffering under the george w. bush administration and there was a real fear that without the filibuster then george bush would have been able to put some of his very radical extremists on the bench and push through more of his agenda. so i understand the reticence to kind of unleash the nuclear option. and you know, i don't think you can necessarily blame harry reid for
to them? what happened to that republican party? for the civil rights act, the republican vote in the u.s. senate was 27-6. in the house it was 136-35. four out of five republican members in both houses for civil rights. for the voting rights act the following year the republican vote in the senate was 30-2. in the house the republican vote was 112-24. overwhelming in all cases. i'm watching this debate over the voting rights act and the immediate for it today and i'm struck with the reality that the reason for it today is the republican party. not the party of the 1960s but one of the reince priebus's parties, that one. the one that's backed voter suppression efforts in dozens of states and keeps on doing it. every time a state run by a republican legislature and governor passes another bill making it harder to vote, cutting down on voting days, expanding voter i.d. requirements, you have to wonder, are they doing precisely what the voting rights act was designed to stop? are they deliberately making it harder for minority voters to get into the vote booth and cast their ballots? the rep
it minimizes u.s. risk. but that -- that is a separate conversation. the operation conversation is separate from the legal one. and i think there is more information that is needed to figure out just exactly how we determine who is an imminent threat, who is an al qaeda operative. how do we make those determinations? who is involved in making the determinations before we launch the drone strike. i think those are very weighty questions that deserve more of a public hearing. >> well, the number of strikes versus the bush administration, colonel, very different. obviously, this is how the obama team wants to execute the war on terror. and the broad range, you're okay with it. but what do you tell innocent folks that get killed or an american that might be hit by a strike inadvertently? >> well, there is nothing you can say about that. war is a messy business. even technologically precise war like this. you raise an interesting point about this president. the first month he was in office, he authorized more strikes of this type than president bush had done during his entire term in office. and
of congress, for all the congressmen, is congress, u.s. congress, washington, d.c., 20515. that's washington, d.c., 20515. it will get there. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >> on the verge of changing voting rights forever? this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> rosa parks would have turned 100 years old this month. we do well by placing a statue. >> the rosa parks statue is unveiled in the capitol as conservatives try to destroy her legacy in the supreme court. tonight congressman elijah cummings on justice antonin scalia's jaw-dropping charge about voting and racial entitlements. constitutional expert jonathan turley on today's epic hearing and what it means for the future of the voting rights act. >>> plus, congressman keith ellison of minnesota punches a schoolyard bully in the mouth. >> you are the worst excuse for a journalist i've ever seen. >> there is major movement on guns in the house, the senate, and in an illinois special election. and in a country where equal rights for gays are more popular than ever,
. there is still no consensus about the so-called success of the surge. after the surge the u.s. still lost nearly 1,000 troops along with an unknown number of iraqi civilians, not to mention cost an additional trillion dollars. hagel wanted to get out and refocus on afghanistan. but another reason republicans wanted to stick it to hagel is because they just dislike the president of the united states. in 2008 hagel helped burnish barack obama's candidacy by traveling to the middle east with him. senator lindsey graham also calls himself a friend of chuck hagel. today he was anything but that. graham harped on a comment hagel made in the past about the israeli lobby. hagel has since apologized for the comments. >> name one dumb thing we've been goaded into doing because of the pressure from the israeli or jewish lobby. >> i have already stated that i regret the terminology -- >> but you said back then it makes us do dumb things. so give me -- >> that's what i was referring to. >> -- an example of where we've been intimidated by the israeli/jewish lobby to do something dumb. regarding the mideast, i
of the worst natural disasters in u.s. history, and it happened less than four months ago. sandy took more than 250 lives and caused more than $74 billion in damage. many of the people displaced by sandy are still without homes. for more on this, let's go to msnbc meteorologist bill cairns. bill, it's just getting started. how bad is it going to get? >> right now, ed, until the next four or five hours, this storm is going to go from a novelty to all of the sudden wow, i really hope i don't lose power. >> hear cracking of tree limbs in my yard. that's the type of things that are starting to happen now. and for the next four hours, will only get worse. they pinpoint who was at the biggest risk of losing power. losing power in the middle of winter, in the middle of a blizzard is horrible. it could be a week before the power gets turned on, and it's freezing cold. it's not like in the summer with a hurricane. at least it's warm that we're watching the heaviest snows now, all from rhode island. this blue band, this is intense snow. we've had reports of thunder and lightning in rhode island and conne
senator hagel said the u.s. state department was an adjunct of the israeli foreign minister's office, which i think would be breathtaking if he said that. >> okay. so let's see if we're all on the same page here and have this correct. a right-wing website publishes a resumer from a blog based on something hagel may or may not have said in a speech over, count them, five years ago. and now sitting united states senators are demanding hagel explain himself. hagel provided ayotte and graham with a copy of the speech and notes he does not recall making any such statement. now, folks, this is a pattern for the new gop that maybe mr. viguerie is looking for. senator rand paul pushing a theory about moving guns from libya to syria. paul's theory can be traced back to glenn beck. michele bachmann accused hillary clinton's chief of staff of having ties to the muslim brotherhood. her source? an uncorroborated report from a right wing talker frank gaffney. congressman darrell issa got in the act. he orchestrated an entire circus over the fast and furious gun running operation, all based on the
-foot-long section of u.s. 89 near phoenix literally dropped four feet this morning. the department of transportation says the sudden buckling of the road is not weather-related, and they expect the road is going to be shut down for an extended period of time. we have got bridges, gentlemen, in this country, in your backyard, jerry nadler, that no doubt have got to have some attention. >> we have 78,000 structurally deficient bridges in this country. i think what we ought to do is put a sign at the beginning of every bridge that says this bridge is structurally deficient. proceed at your risk, and see what political pressure developed to start fixing our bridges. the american society of civil engineers says we have a $2.2 trillion, $2.2 trillion backlog of just getting our roads and highways and bridges and water systems up to a safe, reasonable level. and this kind of cutback that we're doing now, this sequester, besides being stupid because it's across the board and nondiscrimina nondiscriminating, and besides being unnecessary is absolutely harmful for all the reasons we're speak
